Akhil Akkineni was quite interested to team up with maverick director Ram Gopal Varma for his next and the film has been planned to start by the end of this year. King Nagarjuna too gave his nod after which an official announcement was out. However with the ongoing controversies in Tollywood on casting couch and Ram Gopal Varma's involvement in the issue did not go well with the Tollywood audience and Mega fans.
Nagarjuna decided to shelve the project with RGV facing the heat all over. Nag is even not sure about the release of Officer which is directed by RGV and is gearing up for May 25th release. With Pawan Kalyan and Mega family wanting a life time ban on Ram Gopal Varma, we have to wait and see how this issue ends. Meanwhile Akhil is gearing up for the shoot of his next movie in the direction of Akhil Akkineni which will roll from May.
